Summary: I would not normally go for phillips branded headphones...but I am very surprised and the brilliant quality they are! I listen to all types of music from drum and bass, rock, indie rock, rap etc, and these headphones gave me a terrific sound for every style of song.
Summary: Amid the trouble with the volume control and the minor imbalance of the headphones left to right when the slide controls are fiddled with (I'd just leave the volume slide at one position and not use it at all), the sound quality is immense. Very impressive.
Summary: I've been using these for a few months now. Very average sounding headphones. They're OK at isolating, they can do the job on the tube in London and when I'm out and about. They do look sleek and the cups are quite comfortable around the ears. Not much bass on these.
